The Story:
It's 1924 in Pasadena, California, and spiritualist-medium Daisy Gumm bands with friends Flossie and Harold to help Lily Bannister, whose abusive husband nearly killed her.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Pinkerton—Daisy's best client—is in a tizzy, insisting Daisy use her spiritualist talent to end the engagement between her daughter and a most unsuitable man.

To Daisy's surprise, the two cases collide, catching her in the middle. Can she prove Lily's husband and Mrs. P's soon-to-be-son-in-law are in cahoots with nefarious human traffickers... before it's too late?

From Alice Duncan:
"I was inspired to write this book after hearing from a loyal Daisy Gumm Majesty fan from Australia. She wrote to tell me how Daisy’s adventures helped her through rough times. We started corresponding and I learned her husband beat her nearly to death and locked her in the basement. She managed to escape, but still suffers from PTSD and a variety of other problems. So while the book is basically fictitious and humorous, the subject is quite real and serious.

"The book also deals with child sex-trafficking, which still goes on and is still as repulsive as ever.

"I don’t know how I manage to write funny books about this kind of stuff but I promise readers many laughs.

"Book #11, SPIRITS UNITED, is in the works and should be available in 2017."
